Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum
I had this same problem. All of a sudden it shuts off while vacuuming and then i'd have to wait a while before it would turn back on. Finally it stopped working period. Before going out to buy a new vacuum, I decided to take the thing apart and clean it up really good. That included running a clothes hanger through the tubes to get all the stuck hair out, removing the roller and getting all the hair untangled from it, and rinsing out the air filters (both the sponge and the plastic piece with the paper like filter) with hot water. Then you let the filters dry for a day or two. The plastic/paper filter takes longer to dry so I used a hair dryer. The vacuum itself is not hard to take apart. I think there are only 11 total screws you need to take out. After the filters dried I put them back in the newly cleaned vacuum and it worked like new. I think the main problem was the condition of the filters. They can get pretty filthy over time, which will limit the air flow to the motor. With less air the motor is more likely to overheat and shut off. So keep your filters clean and you shouldn't have any proplems.
